#OnThisDay 1919 Michael Collins & Harry Boland, after three attempts, broke Eamon De Valera, the President of Dáil Éireann, out of Lincoln Jail with the age old trick, a key in a fruitcake. Two other Irish men, Sean Milroy & Sean McGarry also escaped.
I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now.
I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in.
Hope you enjoy.
